The Centre is likely to come up with a new formula for determining the revision in salaries of employees instead of fixing the pay on the basis of the recommendations of the Pay Commission.
As per reports, the Seventh Pay Commission will be the last pay commission recommending salary revision of employees and there might be no new Pay Commission thereafter.
The Zee News citing media reports quoting sources in the Finance Ministry said that the new salary hike will be based on performance-linked increment.
However, there is no clear picture as yet of the modalities regarding the assessment in salary calculation. The central government is reportedly working on it.
In 2016, the Centre brought several reforms which enabled the implementation of the 7th CPC recommendations within six months from the due date. Prior to that, employees had to wait for 19 months for the implementation of the commission’s recommendations at the time of the 5th CPC, and for 32 months at the time of implementation of the 6th CPC.
